The Member of Parliament for Abuakwa South, Samuel Atta Akyea has disclosed that an individual who is interested in his seat was the one behind a complaint filed against him at the Office of the Special Prosecutor.
The OSP in his half yearly report published last week indicated that the office had investigated a complaint against Atta Akyea and found out that there was no merit in the allegations against him.The OSP said it terminated investigations into the complaint in July this year for “lack of evidence.”
The report revealed that “The complainant and his accomplices are under investigation for filing the complaint with the singular aim of tarnishing the reputation of the respondent,”
The Report spans the period covering 5 August 2021 to 31 July 2022.
The case involving Mr Atta Akyea forms part of three cases, which investigations have been concluded by the Special Prosecutor. One other complaint that the OSP found to be unmeritorious was an allegation that the Ghana Cocoa Board sole-sourced a contract to Agri-Plus Horizon Farms Limited “on the ground of nepotism and/or trade-based money laundering.” The OSP said it had terminated investigation due to a lack of evidence.
Though Mr. Atta Akyea did not disclose the politician he believed to be behind the accusation against him, he was emphatic that he will soon be exposed. According to him, the person has damaged his own reputation and cannot have any chance in any election.
Earlier this year, the OSP published that it was looking for a former communication team member of the NDC, Dela Coffie. Some days later, Mr. Coffie presented himself to the OSP and he was arrested and detained, for an offence not disclosed. Coffie later disclosed in a statement that it was in relation to some allegations against Mr. Atta Akyea.
